ERLC President Russell Moore Calls Ky. Supreme Court Ruling on Free Speech ‘Good News for Every American’

WASHINGTON, D.C., Oct. 31, 2019—The Kentucky Supreme Court ruled in favor of Blaine Adamson, a promotional print shop owner, who declined to print a message on T-shirts that violated his religious convictions. 

In its ruling, the state’s Supreme Court unanimously affirmed that the Gay and Lesbian Services Organization did not have a legal right to sue Adamson or his business.

Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, comments on this religious liberty victory:

“This decision is good news for every American. We need to live in the kind of country where we can be free to seek to persuade one another, not bully each other into silence. Conservative evangelicals, secular progressives, and everyone in between ought to be able to agree on the idea that a state must not act as lord over the conscience. My hope is that this decision is a sign that courts around the country will continue to uphold conscience freedom and personal soul liberty.”
